Peter Clark has been a lifelong aviation addict and today is one of New Zealand's foremost commentators on the aviation industry. Over the last 30 years he has experienced an incredible number of aviation adventures and he has written about them in Flying. Among the experiences he recounts: Travelling into the war zone in East Timor with the RNZAF -- Meeting John Travolta when the Hollywood star was a Qantas ambassador -- Flying to Antarctica with the RNZAF -- Travelling by Concorde -- Meeting former United States President Bill Clinton during his visit to New Zealand -- Taking over the controls of a plane from a sick pilot during one flight in New Zealand -- Flying to Greenland with the United States Air Force -- Chatting to French President Jacques Chirac during the launch of the Airbus in France in 2005 -- Taking part in the final flight of the New Zealand Air Force's Skyhawks -- Tagging along on the Flying Doctor Service through the Australian outback. The book is divided into 34 chapters and all offer fascinating accounts of different parts of aviation. Peter is an exceptionally accomplished professional photographer and his photos are a highlight of the book.
